Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Domes Lake Algarve’s superlative location sees flocks of migratory birds each year, providing a Mediterranean, oasis-like setting. Combined with architectural grandeur and views of the marina on the horizon, this is a place where you can soak up the best of both worlds: lush green landscapes and the cosmopolitan vibe of Vilamoura.

Rooms at Domes Lake Algarve

Head in from the tropical gardens to find an elegant collection of spacious yet inviting retreat interiors featuring minimalist blue-white colour schemes alongside cool, stone floors and cosy rugs. Wake up to the sound of birdsong in plush beds before stepping out onto the balcony or terrace to admire sweeping views of the coastline or the lush, verdant grounds.

If you’re looking for an even more elevated stay, the Haute Living collection of retreats and suites provide guests with exclusive access to the Haute Living Room, amongst other perks.

Food & Drink

Start your day with a delicious breakfast buffet at the Gustatio restaurant. Later, after a lazy day on the beach, dine on Greek island fare and seafood at Topos, or try some Greek-Mediterranean cuisine at the lakeside Makris venue. Dance the night away to live DJ music at the lagoon bar with a tasty cocktail in hand or stop over at Raw Gastro for some gourmet bites and champagne. Alternatively, if you’re in the mood for some authentic, Portuguese seafood, the rustic SORA Beach Restaurant is the place to go for traditional local fare accompanied by enchanting sunset views.


When you’re not enjoying sun-kissed days by one of the three outdoor pools (including one with a natural sand bottom) retreat to the adults-only spa in the heart of the wetland area for a healing massage. If not, perhaps you’d like to relax on a lakeside pergola to watch local birds or walk around the wooden deck that meanders around the lake.

Activities at Domes Lake Algarve

The resort’s qualified team of diving instructors and marine biologists are on hand to help you explore the beauty of the nearby Armacao de Pera reef, while the Ria Formosa Natural Park offers plenty of opportunities for birdwatching and picturesque hikes.

Explore Portugal’s beautiful beaches and hidden-away caves on sailing trips and sea kayaking adventures or tee off at one of the world-renowned golf courses nearby, accessible by complimentary shuttle bus. For a real-life adventure in a traditional fishing boat, spend the day with a local fisherman picking oysters and clams in the Ria Formosa natural park. By night, return to the hotel for an evening Mixology class and drinks overlooking the glistening lagoon.

There is also a plethora of child-friendly activities to keep younger guests entertained, ranging from tennis lessons to arts and crafts workshops, games of mini-golf and scenic bike rides.
